High Blood Pressure Awareness Month

June 2019

This month, ITCA WIC would like to bring some light to an important matter; your heart. High blood pressure affects one in three Americans and yet many people with the condition do not know they have it. This is because high blood pressure often has no symptoms and why it is referred to as the silent killer. When left untreated, the damage that high blood pressure does to your body is a big contributor to heart attacks, strokes, and heart disease. Heart disease is the leading cause of death among American Indians. The best way to know if you have high blood pressure is to have your blood pressure checked regularly; doctors suggest getting checked once every few months. Diabetes increases the chances of high blood pressure. Check out the links below for other factors that can increase your risk for high blood pressure and ways to help prevent it.
